I don’t know if this is something she feels in general or whether she sees Michael Jackson as “special” like her and thus deserving of a break. We’ve seen that before with everyone from Bill Clinton to Mike Tyson to Roman Polanski. “Special” people should be able to do whatever they want — but endorsing sex with kids? I had trouble believing this was real…
Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children.
…“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” Streisand told The Times. “You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
Of course they were thrilled to be there! Imagine being a 7 year old kid with bad parents who has the biggest pop star on the planet taking an interest in you. We’re talking about one of the most beloved figures on the planet at the time. A guy with infinite money, a pet chimp & his own personal amusement park. You spend time with him and the world is your oyster. You have pornography, candy, servants, money — and you have to do some weird stuff with Michael Jackson, but maybe everyone does that? What do you know about sex?
Back then was a more innocent time as well because the majority opinion didn’t seem to be that a childlike grown man who wanted to sleep in a bed with children was a molester even after allegations were made. Of course, some of us weren’t fooled. Here’s something I wrote back in 2003.
So you see the MO don’t you? Jackson finds a kid he likes, lavishes their family with money and then invites the kid to sleep over. The parents don’t feel comfortable with it, but hey, are they really going to offend this incredibly wealthy and generous celebrity who’s spending so much money on them?
I just have one question for all the parents involved here and that is, “Hey you Judases, how many pieces of silver did Jackson pay you to pimp out your children to him?”
Someone should ask them that…
Last but not least, I love Streisand’s “it didn’t kill them” comment. So, did the child throw himself off a building or blow his brains out? No? Then it must have been fine.
